  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round
Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Brønsted Acid Catalysed Asymmetric Synthesis of Cyclic Ethers
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
Over recent years there has been a drive by medicinal chemists to explore more 3-dimensional areas of chemical space. Cyclic ethers, such as the tetrahydropyran (THP) and the tetrahydrofuran (THF) rings, are the most common and 6th most common saturated heterocyclic function present in marketed pharmaceuticals.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  Engineering Enzymes for Industrial Biotechnology
  Prof G J Grogan
Applications accepted all year round
Our research group is interested in the identification, characterization and application of enzymes of interest to biotechnology.
  Synthesis of Lamellarin alkaloids using a photoredox initiated cyclisation cascade
  Dr M Kimber
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019
Our research group focuses on the synthesis of heterocycles, particularly using singlet oxygen and activation of enamides and allenamides.
  PhD in Enantioselective Catalysis and mechanistic studies
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is currently directed towards developing catalytic methods for the promotion of a range of synthetic transformations with varying applications in enantioselective catalysis.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round
The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Shell waste from Aquaculture: Waste product or untapped resource?
  Dr H Hughes, Dr M Kinsella
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Post summary. Applications are invited for suitably qualified candidates interested in pursuing a PhD by completing a multidisciplinary and extremely industrially relevant research project within the PMBRC/EIRC at WIT.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
